Good Design

I was blog hopping earlier today and ran across this poster. The first thought that came to my head was, literally: “Dude, that would look pretty cool letterpress printed, with some nice old wood type.” The second thought was “Wow, that’s sad, but painfully true.” (Image via Design Crush)

Carlos Lascano

I’m headed up to Portland this afternoon to run a few letterpress-related errands and potentially do some shopping.  While I’m away, you can tide yourself over with this lovely stop motion animation.  I recently discovered Carlos Lascano, and I think that I may be in love (with his work).  As another blogger put it: his […]

Featured on Stiksel!

I woke up this morning to find a lovely message in my inbox from Karin, a graphic designer in the Netherlands, who blogged about my new green scroll cards.  These cards were originally sold in red, yellow and blue, but I have had a few different custom requests that they be printed in other colors, […]

Vote!

I’m proud to say that I dropped off my ballot for the upcoming November 4th election this morning.  If you live in Oregon you will probably be receiving your ballot by mail this week if you haven’t received it already.  With one of the most important elections of our time (in my opinion) occurring only 16 days […]

Featured on Mixed Plate!

Back in June, before I had this blog up and rolling, my “This is how we roll” Sushi Cards were featured on the design blog Mixed Plate.  If you’re just tuning in and missed this awesome feature, you can still check it out by clicking here.  I hope you’re having a great weekend!  There will […]

Frogs!

It’s been a while since I gave my little etsy shop any real attention on this blog – so I thought I would share one of the newest additions to it with you!  If you haven’t been to my etsy shop in a while, you’ll notice a couple of really cute new additions, both in […]

Glowing Reviews

Now this may sound a little pretentious, but Twin Ravens Press loves glowing reviews of our work almost as much as we love puddle stomping and Oreo cookies with peanut butter on them.  While I feel like getting to do what I love every day is reward enough in-and-of-itself, reading or hearing about someone else […]

Meet Your Maker Show & Sale on October 3rd!

This will be a very brief post because there’s a lot going on here today, but if you’re in Eugene, Oregon and don’t already have plans for this evening, Friday, October 3rd, you should come down to the First Friday Artwalk.  All of the downtown galleries will be open late and you can come and […]

Custom Business Cards | Finch Metal

Generally speaking, the majority of the custom work that I do currently is for wedding invitations and other social stationary.  One of my favorite other types of custom work to do though is business stationary.  I often think that with all of the “get way more business cards than you would ever need for $19.95” […]

Weddings | Lynn & Matthew

This will be the first of many posts on this blog regarding weddings and custom wedding stationary.  When I first started Twin Ravens Press I knew that I was really interested in doing custom letterpress printing and design work, one on one, for various clients.  Don’t get me wrong, I like doing the cards and […]
